these folks voted in local elections. that doesn't matter. because the governor came in with the strength of the state legislator and said, you know what, we're going to erase your vote. so actually, the last election these people were participating in, it was kind of a conditional thing. you know, if the numbers didn't work out, we're not going to give a damn how you voted. that's basically what has unfolded here. emergency city manager, kevin orr, will now take complete control of detroit. earlier today, the mayor, dave bing, said that it's a sad day for workers in detroit and the city. >> it's very, very important, i think, that we respect the fact that the emergency manager has the key to the city at this point in time. i know there are a lot of people that are upset, that are concerned about their futures. but we are now starting from square one. it's a process that i think we need to take a lot of care, because there's going to be pain for a lot of different people. but in the long run, i think the future of the city will be bright. >> i offer to you tonight, this is unnecessary pai

would wish that the president could do more to elect politicians that would actually do something on behalf of the 99%. he doesn't have that power. so i thinkit smart politics for him to raise a ruckus over this. the other side of the aisle has no interest in helping working class people whatsoever. we are living in the matrix. and instead of being a battery, they want to turn you into an overdrawn checking account. what it really comes down to, these are the real problems people care about. working class people don't care about the deficit, they don't care about ending abortion. they need a paycheck so they can support their family. and to listen to republican politicians and the talking heads at fox news bad mouth working class people, come on. we already know that the republican party is the party of mitt romney. could care less about anybody less than $250,000. for the president to come out and make this speech is extremely wise politics, because it's what people care about and that's how you win elections. >> he's got to stay on it. the democrats have got to stay on it. i thi

are the ones that are going to be the most helpful in election because the anger movement and the discontentment with how this thing is going is really what gets people protesting and gets people out to the polls an gets people upset with the way things are going. >> gentlemen, thanks so much, jim eem williams, hogan gidley, great to see you. that leads us to our big question for all of you today. will the white house pr push to sell obama care defeat any gop efforts to try to sabotage the aca law? weigh in on facebook and twitter. >>> just a reminder for everybody, chris matthews will exclusively interview president obama this week as part of his "hardball" college tour coming from american university. that interview will air this thursday at 7:00 p.m. eastern right here on msnbc. you do not want to miss it. >>> immigration activists keep up their washington fast, but will their efforts translate into real reform on capitol hill? we'll take a look at that. >>> also ahead, have you heard detroit bracing for a bankruptcy ruling today. right now the judge is reading his deci

under the protection of the nationally elected president and charged him to take care that they would be faithfully executed. let's first take a quick look at one of the targets of these charges and that is phasing in the aca that is a routine )-close-paren action. whether the administration do? on july 2, it announced the decision to postpone for one year to january 1, 2014 effective date for the aca that workers provide health insurance or pay taxes. this and other subsequently announced the delays do not enforce at all. on the contrary they are merely phasing in the adjustments designed to ensure effective implementation of the statute in accordance with congress purposes. the treasury department announcement makes that clear in the proposed regulations that it has followed through on on september 5 to make that clear as does the treasury statement that it intends to continue fine-tuning those regulations and working with the people affected by them until you become finally effective. and i should emphasize just after the administration took this action, president george w. bush se

of congratulations that had been sent to president-elect carter. at the same time, you know, she wouldn't miss life in politics. he had promised her long before watergate that they were going to retire in 1976. once he concluded he would not be speaker of the house, she had exacted a promise that after 1976, they would leave washington, go back to grand rapids, practice law, had no money, make a little bit of money for the kids and so on, and intervening events played havoc with that, but they left washington to go to another destination. >> host: we talked about the struggles with alcohol when he was in the house of representatives. here's what she wrote about this in the white house years. the next problem got worse and my pills were always with me. still, i didn't not drink alcoholically in the white house. there was too much at stake. what little drinking we did was confined to camp david on a weekend or drinks upstairs before we went to bed. now she said the pills were always with me. how big a problem was this for her in her white house years? >> guest: you know, i don't know how to answer th

" is why bill de blasio was elected. the tale of two cities as he put it. a lot of it, steve you have some charts here -- goes to affordable housing. so many elements to this story. it's not a new york city story it's a national story. mika said one in five american children live in poverty. >> it's a national story. what you have are a number of things that come together to create it. you had this terrible recession. you have the rising income equality which is fine for wealthy people to get wealthier but the people at the bottom have gotten poorer. you have reduction in food stamps. the average food stamp income has gone from $33 to $25 as part of this. you got a discussion about the minimum wage. >> you can't live on it. >> there's a whole bunch of things that come together in a perfect storm for people at the bottom and so they feel very picked upon and i think rightly so. >> joe, you would agree you got to make work pay in order to get people network. asking people to work for something they can't afford to support their family on that's not really how welfare reform works. >> i agree

, the anniversary of those first democratic elections is next year, it was 20 years ago. so a lot of people, a lot of these people here didn't know apartheid, didn't know about the feel, the indignities of it, but they still know that nelson mandela made sacrifices for them. and the key is -- and he was very, very passionate about it -- he wanted his legacy to live on way after he had gone. and dethat he did that, "you ca like me in a small way. it's not hard to be nelson mandela. just pay attention to the people close to you and keep on trying hard and never give up." that in a way is his legacy. >> and they are living his legacy out. robin, thank you. appreciate it. >> reporter: okay. >>> one of the icons of new york honored nelson mandela last night. look at this. the top of the empire state building -- >> right. >> -- lit up green, yellow, blue, red, the color of the south african flag, and nearby at the south african consulate -- >> there it is. >> -- there it is, mourners laid the flowers and tributes to man tell la. >> beautiful sight. >>> all right. still to come -- huge day in college foo

and ezekiel emanuel may think of young people, that's a bad deal. as you point out, we've had three elections on this. there's nobody in the america who has not at least heard of obama care and i think that -- i think that what we're seeing is their very real refusal to go along with it because as you say, it's a bad idea for them. >> the white house, charlie, has to be deeply worried about the new harvard millennial poll. only 22% of young americans plan to sign up. 47% say it's unlikely they are going to sign up. i mean, those young people are the ones who are supposed to pay, as you point out, for the higher health costs for older and sick americans. if that doesn't happen, charlie, it could cause what experts say is a death spiral of skyrocketing premiums and then the risk, the collapse of the entire system. right? >> and i think -- absolutely. and i think that is exactly why the administration would much rather spend their time talking about what a disaster the website is and we're going to fix the website and get the glitches out. and you know what, eventually -- and they compare it to

the clarity of message or the attraction with the president. in 2004 they were calling specifically for re-elections. this time they want him to go or the government to step down for a new government. they are talking about obstruction measures, they want a change in the political system. these are ideas that are difficult to force concessions on. these are sitting with vladimir putin on friday. people want to know what he was discussing. this has been an this is a choice between europe or a choice between some kind of soviet union 2.4, they russia has a corrupting influence on the country. we'll see how things progress throughout the day. >> thank you for joining us from kiev. a car bomb attack from a police station in columbia killed eight people. it happened in a town south-east of the booingo tea. fighters known as farc are suspected of being behind the attack. leaders and officials are engaged in talks, trying to end a 50 year war that is taking 200,000 lives. >> 72 years ago this weekend pearl harbour was attacked. it was known as the day of infamy. 400 japanese plants bombarded -- planes bom
rouhani was elected, there was some acceleration leading up to the u.n. general assembly. you'll recall that rouhani was engaging in what was termed a charm offensive, right, and he was going around talking to folks. and at that point, it made sense for us to see, all right, how serious are you potentially about having these conversations. they did not get highly substantive in the first several meetings but were much more exploring how much room, in fact, did they have to get something done. and then as soon as they began to get more technical, at that point, they converged with the p5-plus-1 discussions. i will say this -- the fact of rouhani's election -- it's been said that there's no difference between him and ahmadinejad except that he's more charming. i think that understates the shift in politics that took place in this election. obviously, rouhani is part of the iranian establishment and i think we have to assume that his ideology is one that is hostile to the united states and to israel. but what he also represents is the desire on the part of the iranian people for a change o
earlier in the challenge he gave to elected officials and business leaders. it was reminding me of leo xiii. that was over 100 years ago. it was an encyclical that recognized the value of work and respect for workers. it seems to me we should reread that as well as we rejoice in pope francis' very valuable statements. thank you for catholic charity's work. this is, as you said at the end, this is on top of everything else. this is on top of the resistance to raising the minimum wage, for cutting $40 billion out of food stamps. i mean, how unconscionable can that be? pell grants, now wanting to cut pell grants which are providing education for low-income families. title i for economically advantaged areas to have the education. the list goes on and on of the compounding of all of these things that are not really a budget that is a statement of our values. but really just -- perhaps they don't know. they either don't know or they don't care. so let's hope that now knowing they will care. thank you for improving the knowledge base that people have on this. yes indeed we are making a very

addresses, i've used his decision when elected president of south africa to invite that guard from his prison to be there as one of his honored guests at his inauguration as president of south africa. that, to me, speaks volumes. nelson mandela taught us powerful lessons about justice, tolerance and reconciliation. as the first democratically elected president of south africa, mandela was the father of a new nation, like george washington the father of our nation, he chose deliberately to walk away from power. in doing so he reminded us that peaceful, orderly transition of power is one of the hall machines of a real -- hallmarks of a real democracy. sadly this year, for the second year in a roarks the award committee wouldn't identify one african leader who met that standard. leaders in neighboring zimbabwe, egypt, cuba and so many other nations torn by conflict and manipulated division would do well to ponder this greatness of nelson mandela. at the end of persist presidency he came to washington to receive the congressional gold medal. this congressional gold medal is the highest hon

of the key elements of the majority's winning elections and majority in the senate. and for us to wait since, i believe, june when we passed the bill out of the armed services committee until just shortly, a short time ago and then only allowing a few days is really a grave disservice not so much to the members of the senate, but it's a grave disservice and a lack of prioritization of the importance of this legislation. and i'm deeply disappointed that the majority leader of the senate, because of his manipulation of the calendar has put us in this position. having said that, i spend time, as i know the senator from oklahoma and the senator from michigan, our distinguished chairman have, in the company of men and women who serve. one of our obligations as members of the armed services committee is to spend time with the military. i know that the senator from oklahoma does and the senator from -- the chairman does as well. and, you know, their morale isn't good. they've seen sequestration take place, across-the-board cuts that have been done with a meat-ax and not a scalpel. and all three of
at the polling in 2008 about health care when the president was running for election the first time, it was clearly defined for voters or especially swing voters as an economic issue. this is not separate from pocketbook issues, this is right on point. that's why given where we are at with a still struggling economy for many people, health care does fit into these pocketbook issues. when republicans talk about you've got your free choice of doctors, for most people there isn't an actual free choice, because the cost of going to any doctor, any hospital you want is prohibitive. those are those out of network costs that make it very, very difficult for anyone to support this free choice that supposedly is part of this system. so people understand that very well. what they don't understand is what the president is proposing and how these costs will come down if they take part in these exchanges or the coverage they get will be better through their employer. >> has the democratic side been outmaneuvered on this, outmarketed on this so far, rick? >> well, they labor under the disadvantag
. >> the arkansas democrat is considered the most vulnerable senator up for re-election n year. in the new spot, he wants voters to know he's a man of faith. >> the bible teaches us no one has all the answers, only god does. and neither political party is always right. this is my compass, my north star. it gives me comfort and guidance to do what's best for arkansas. >> the campaign won't say how much tv time they bought, marco rubio's super pac launches a six figure ad buy. >>> hillary clinton can read a little easier. elizabeth warren tells the boston harold she is not running for president in 2016. >>> the great people at the onion are having fun with out jog fair michael bloomberg. this time they are poking fun at the stop and kiss policy. >> the policy allows officers to kick anyone they think looks suspicious has been a subject of criticism for those who say it's a violation of privacy and breech of constitutional rights. >> every time i go out and i see a cop, i'm ready for him to come up and ask me questions and give me a little kiss just because of the color of my skin. i mean you don't se
forward as the first black representative in that democratically elected government. in that way, they do have a great deal in common. you do see a very nervous and frightened group of white south africans wondering exactly what his presidency meant for them. and in some ways, you saw the same thing when mr. obama was on the verge of being elected. one other thing they have in common, we talk about mr. mandela serving 27 years in prison but we don't necessarily talk about why and what were the core issues there. they were dedicated to the premise of one person, one vote. so without that 1965 voting rights act, which is a direct product of the civil rights movement, mr. obama's presidency does not exist. they're bound together by that same issue and the activism that was required in order to make -- >> that's a good point. >> in addition to the comparisons between the two of them, which is important, i think the other remarkable thing is the thread of liberty that connects them across space and time. the abolitionist improvement inspired thorough who inspired gandhi who inspired mandela. i

elected to redeem their interest in 2013. we will see what happens from here on out but the stock is reacting negaaivey. ashley: taking public transportation to work is about to get more taxing. right now train and bus riders and motorists can get $245 a month in tax breaks but come january public transit riders will see that number cut in half, drivers will get a bigger tax break. dan smith, tax advocate for public interest research group joins us with his beach. joining along with my be. let's get this straight. commuters lose substantial slice of their tax break but motorists are regarded or won't be getting even more. >> exactly right. come january 1st if congress doesn't act, three million people who take public transit to work every day suddenly will see the cost of their trip become more expensive and this doesn't make any sense. it is unfair for people that take public transit to work and it also distorts consumer choices in the worst way possible by using tax code to buy incentive for driving and that means more oil consumption, more people sitting in traffic and more air

particularly because of the shutdown and how that hurt republicans. and it's an election year in 2014, republicans want to talk about obama care, they want to talk about other issues. they think they can beat up on obama and the democrats and don't want to get bogged down by shutdowns and debt limit fights. there's no reason to think stocks are too high because washington's going to kill everything. >> and maybe it was set so low because it was on the floor. >> you can't go much lower than they are. they can clear the bar for expectations which is no shut down. and maybe get the approval ratings in the 10% range, double digits at some point. >> one of the things we've been watching is what the fed's going to do next. how much do you think the fed has been responsible for this. and if the tapering begins, is that really something that takes the steam out of the market? not if it's just based on valuations like you've been talking. >> i have not been of the view that fed-driven liquidity is the sole support under the market. we touched on it a few minutes ago, there are many traditional
direction for the democratic party can win elections outside massachusetts? is this an active debate within the democratic coalition right now? >> when you poll the public on things like education, jobs, people want good jobs. people want the american dream. if you look at doug sosnick recent blog post, i think he was -- which i think was not in atlantic but in the politico? sorry. i think it's totally right, that one of the great unifying factors in this country was if you work hard and play by a sense of fairness rules, you should do okay. and our guidepost was our kids, the next generation, do better than we are. and that's changed. and people are really anxious about that. they want to work hard and want to do okay. and so i think that there is -- were look at the elections the just, in 2013, christie one in new jersey. that's true. but so did minimum wage expansion. terry mcauliffe one in virginia. walsh in boston. the bellagio in new york. someone -- toledo, the person -- >> could you speak up a little bit please? >> sorry. there is something going on in the country that is about, yes

[laughter] too many questions. i had after used three -- i had to ask you three. . >> i need a couple hours. it is unraveling on its own effects. i was telling jonathan that i think it is not that government is inherently stupid, although that is a debatable point. [laughter] it is that they do not get the right senators. the business would be run this way because you would be run out of business immediately. we have put into law perverse incentives. insurance had cheap no longer can buy that. it is what they could afford and that is the only way they had it. i
